Shawn Mendes Opens Up About Life After Camila Cabello Breakup

Pop power couple Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello broke up last November, which came as a surprise to many. Now, Shawn Mendes is speaking out about some personal struggles he faced following the split.

He’s Reflecting

The two singers dated for more than two years. While Shawn, 23, has expressed his feelings through his music since then, on Friday, March 18, he released a full video confessional on Instagram, in which he addressed the split directly for the first time. 

While speaking about upcoming new music, the Canadian star said:

“A lot of the things that also is like, resonating in the lyric for me is like, oh, f–k, you know, you don’t realize, like, when you’re like, breaking up with someone, you like think it’s the right thing to do, you don’t realize all this s–t that comes after it. Like, who do I call when I’m like, in a panic attack? Who do I call when I’m like, f–king, on the edge?”

He continued, “I think that’s the reality that kind of hit me. It’s like, oh, I’m on my own now. Now I feel like finally, like, I’m actually on my own, and I hate that. That’s my reality, you know?”

Her Side of the Story

Shawn and Camila have kept in touch following their split. In January, they were photographed together in Miami, walking their golden retriever, Tarzan.

A few weeks ago, Camila released her own breakup anthem—”Bam Bam,” featuring Ed Sheeran. In “Bam Bam,” Camila sings, “We were kids at the start, I guess we’re grown-ups now.” 

“I love Shawn,” she told Apple Music 1’s Zane Lowe in an interview released earlier this month. “And I feel like there is literally nothing but love for him. And this song is mostly just about like, ‘Okay, how do I make a song that shows the cycles of love, and life, and gives people…’ Whatever it is that’s going on in your life… hopefully, this can make you be like, ‘It is that way now, but things are always taking crazy turns.'”
